28 Jun Quintessentially LA
Two weeks ago one of my best friends and I had just 24 hours to spend in Los Angeles. We checked in to the Beverly Wiltshire, had dinner at one of Wolfgang Puck’s restaurants, power shopped Rodeo Drive, lunched at the Ivy and then took a leisurely drive out to Palm Springs. It was perfect!
Let me take a moment to elaborate on the dinner because I quite simply had one of the best meals of my life that night. I have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world but this one took the prize for me. “Cut”, Wolfgang Puck’s steakhouse at the Beverley Wiltshire has the kind of food that makes me extremely happy – perfect ingredients prepared simply. I started with a fresh and delicious green bean salad and my main was a steak, like no other steak I have ever eaten, accompanied by a side of the most decadent and sensational mac and cheese to ever cross these lips. To top off an outstanding evening, Wolfgang himself made the rounds and came to our table to meet us – a perfect host.
(And yes, I am an animal lover who eats steak. I will be posting a video on my perspective on the subject one of these days…)
The third photo shows me outside the famous LA restaurant, the Ivy, where we had a lovely lunch served by a delicious witty, blonde waiter from Scotland – Yum!
Cheers to LA!
